Nokia Lumia 1020 Unveiled with 41 MP Camera 12 July 2013, 16:56 IST
At an event in New York, Nokia showed off its newest device with one of the best camera on a mobile phone, it's the Lumia 1020. A large number of images and videos have leaked that showed the design and some camera features of the device, but now it's all official. As expected, the device comes with a mammoth size camera of 41MP.
On the hardware front, the device comes with a 4.5 inch PureMotion HD+ AMOLED Display with ClearBlack and resolution of 1280x768 pixels with Super Touch Sensitivity. It has 1.5 GHZ dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus processor with 2 GB of RAM and an internal memory of 32 GB which is not expandable.
It runs on Windows 8 with the latest Amber update that we had first seen on the Lumia 925, it comes with all the software features available and exclusive to Lumia devices including Here Maps, Drive (though, they are now available for all Windows 8 devices), Nokia Music, etc. The Nokia Liumia 1020 has dimensions that read 130.4 x 71.4 x 10.4 mm and it weighs 158 grams.
Star of the show is the 41MP camera sensor with Xenon Flash, Carl Zeiss lens, f/2.2 aperture and Optical Image Stabilization. The camera can take ultra-sharp 5MP shots using 'Oversampling' that combines several pixels into one super-accurate pixel. The camera can capture 34MP wide-angle photos while 38MP in 4:3 aspect ratio. It comes with Nokia Pro Camera app which helps user to make several changes in the camera settings before capturing photos. Sharpness in photos is ensured with six Zeiss lenses in wide angle.
The camera is capable of shooting full HD 1080p videos while there is front facing camera of 1.2MP (feels too small in front if 41MP). It is powered by 2000 mAh battery with talk-time of 13.3 hrs on 3G. The Lumia 1020 comes with all the connectivity features like 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, USB and NFC.
It would be worth seeing that how it will be priced in India once it gets launched here. It has already been listed on Nokia India website.
It would not be wrong if 2012 is called the year of Android devices, because this was the year when a large number of android powered devices were launched by some Indian which had features to compete with high end devices. This all created a chaos and confused the buyer that which phone he needs to buy. Don't worry, we have come up with a list of Android phones to suit every budget.
On the foot steps of the launch event of Samsung Galaxy S4 in India, I got a chance to put my hands on to the flagship device. The device has almost same dimensions as seen on Galaxy S3, despite the fact that the display is a bit larger than the S3.
The Karbonn A5+ is an upgraded version of Karbonn A5 and the only difference as compared to its predecessor is that the A5+ comes powered by 1GHz processor and with a 3MP rear camera. The A5+ is also cheaper than the A5 handset.
